It’s getting to the point where it’s more difficult to post sections from the sequel without giving too much away about new characters and plots, so the Teaser Tuesdays may become less regular and shorter as I have to limit what I can show you. This week is just a short little paragraph about an excursion Vera takes to a local coffee shop, and reflects most of the frustration and annoyance I feel when I go to a coffee shop myself (which is rare itself).
Vera left the coffee shop, sipping on her mocha, which was quite delicious. It was nice when baristas actually knew what they were doing. All too often they would utterly fail at creating a drink. In fact, the last coffee that Vera had drank in the twenty-first century was watered down, too sweet, and flavored far too strongly. To even call it a coffee was an insult to the arabica tree that the coffee beans had been harvested from. This time, however, the coffee was perfect. She walked along, enjoying the evening breeze coming off the ocean. It wasn’t long, however, before she arrived at the block containing the bookstore and had to put a stop to her evening stroll.
So what’s next? Well a bit of the bookstore scene will probably show up in the next Teaser Tuesday, which will be in a week or two. Stay tuned!
